Aims: Job rotation is considered as one of the human resource development methods. This study was carried out to investigate the correlation between job rotation and visiting number of Environmental Health employees.
Materials & Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was done on environmental health employees in three health centers of North, North West and East of Tehran in 2011. 42 persons were selected using stratified sampling method. Data collected using the information collection form and using employee's monthly detailed statistics to evaluate their performance. Data were analyzed by SPSS 17 software using Mann-Whitney test.
Findings: The mean of job rotation frequencies was 5.5±5.0 (least 1 to the most 20 times). There was not a significant correlation (p>0.496) between the visiting frequency of persons who had job rotation recently (76.14±15.46%) and persons who had not job rotation recently (73.53±16.34%). There was no significant correlation between the visiting number frequencies according to the number of rotations during work in four 1-5 (77.36±16.30%), 6-10 (74.02±13.20%), 11-15 (67.17±22.43%) and 16-20 rotations (66.37±17.09%) groups (p=0.31).
Conclusion: Environmental health employees’ performance is independent from their job rotation condition, and job rotation does not improve employees’ visiting number.
